The shower was difficult to use to get comfortable water flow and temperature. Also, small fridge ran intermittently and did not cool well.

Small downtown hotel , five min walk to metro
Good stay. Clean and quiet hotel.

Would possibly stay here again
Really like the location. Stayed here on a previous trip and had a better room/experience that time. It's totally fine for the low price. I would probably stay here again provided price is still lower than other places.

Fair 4.0
Shabby; Not Recomended
Wanted to give this hotel a try, as I was tired of the chain hotels. But the Saba hotel is not in good condition, lights didn’t work in the room, no hot water, shabby towels; overall not a pleasant stay. Next time I will pay an extra $5-10 dollars and stay at the Best Western Plus Panama Zen down the street—it’s much higher quality.

Fair 4.0
Quality lost somewhere over the years
Saba use to be our favorite go-to place but management has let the place go which is sad because everything else on Via Argentina has been updated into a beautiful place to visit. The room - dingy and dark. Room definitely could use a coat of paint or two. However, on a good note, the air conditioner was working very well. Breakfast is no longer included which is too bad as it might be an incentive to stay here. Too many good and reasonable restaurants outside of the establishment to pay $6.50 here. Front desk - we were asked to give our credit card so that they could put a hold on it in case we stole something which is odd since the room has nothing of value. At checkout, they make you wait as they actually send someone to the room to verify that you did not steal anything. This is the first time I've experienced this in Panama. As a professional reviewer, I can not recommend staying here unless drastic changes are made. I stayed at three hotels in PC this week and this was the worst of the three and beleive it or not, not the cheapest.
